rtl8187: Fix NULL pointer dereference in priv->conf_mutex
commit 7972326a26b5bf8dc2adac575c4e03ee7e9d193a upstream. This can be reproduced by bind/unbind the driver multiple times in AM3517 board. Analysis revealed that rtl8187_start() was invoked before probe finishes(ie. before the mutex is initialized). INFO: trying to register non-static key. the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation. turning off the locking correctness validator.
